I've Got My Targets

Jordan Bowery moved to Premier League side Aston Villa on transfer deadline day, penning a three-year deal with the Villains.

Following the departure of Bowery, caretaker-manager Tommy Wright will be keen to reinvest the funds back into his squad and in spite of being in the hotseat only a couple of days, the Scotsman has been working hard to secure new recruits after being given backing by his board.

"Before the Bowery thing came up, I did ask if I could bring players in and they said yes," Wright revealed.

"That is why I said i'm having the backing of the board. I haven't really spoke to Dave for a while, I've been going through Chris. But he's given me his backing, I was close to bringing in a couple of players yesterday and got beat by higher clubs but that's football.

"I do watch a lot of football, I've got some targets and we'll be trying our best to improve the squad and balance the squad out a bit better in certain positions and that's the main task i'll be looking to do.

"I'd probably love an out-and-out winger at the club," he also confirmed.

"I think we've got the strikers who will score goals, but i'd like to give them a little more ammunition and i'd love to bring a winger in. And as I say, there's other areas i'd like to improve and now i'm the manager of this club and i've got to decide what's best."
